Owlcat Games has announced that it’s bringing another Pathfinder adventure CRPG to players in the near future with Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. There’s no release date as of yet, and unless I’m an idiot who doesn’t know how to use Google properly, the first Pathfinder game by Owlcat has still yet to release on PS4. It may be a while until Wrath of the Righteous is on PS4, then.
Pathfinder: Kingmaker is available on PC, so if you played it there, the rest of this will still be relevant to you.
Pathfinder: Wrath of Righteous isn’t a direct sequel to Kingmaker, but is instead an adventure based on the Pathfinder boardgame’s Wrath of Righteous story path, but with a few twists and turns to make it a fresh adventure for everyone, even those who’ve wiled away hours on the tabletop boardgame of the same name.
The new game will feature a mythic progression system, more classes, character customisations, and features that the studio wanted in the first game but, for whatever reason, couldn’t implement.
“We are tremendously excited to announce Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous today. With our new game, we are taking everything that made Kingmaker enjoyable and building on top of it. We laid a solid foundation and are going to push the boundaries of the CRPG genre with our next title,” says Oleg Shpilchevskiy, Head of Owlcat Games studio. “We especially want to thank the Kingmaker community for their support because we would not be making this game if it weren’t for them. When Wrath of the Righteous is ready, we cannot wait to see them answer the call again.”
There’s no release date – nor release window – being spoken about at this time, but the developers have stated that they’ll be keeping the fanbase informed throughout the game’s development.
